We’re looking forward to another great sing this Saturday, when it’ll be our turn to host the joint workshop in St Mary’s, Petworth (NOTE: Not the URC!). Thanks to all those who have volunteered to help in any capacity, whether helping Sally by baking cakes, helping with refreshments or driving people to the church on the day, we’ve been really chuffed with the response. If you can come early and help Archie with the set up of seating etc. that would be brilliant!read more
As you will know it’s not possible for coaches to park right outside St Mary’s, so we are looking for a couple of volunteers (whether singing in the rehearsal or not) to help transport members from the other choirs who have difficulty walking from the Sylvia Beaufoy car park to St Mary’s, both before and after the joint rehearsal on Saturday 30th March.
If you can help, please email Archie on firstname.lastname@example.org and you will gain a few Brownie Points!read more
If you’re a Facebook or Instagram user you may have noticed that Amanda, our new Social Media queen, has been finding out some fascinating facts about Elgar, and in doing so has discovered that he lived very happily for a few years in Fittleworth!
Inspired by this, Amanda is organising an ‘Elgar Walk’ – a 3 hour circular walk starting and ending at Fittleworth Village Hall, exploring the environment of the Great Man. All funds raised will go towards our choir’s concert fund.read more
Just a quick reminder that tomorrow we are inviting all Sops and Altos NOT in the Semi Chorus to an early rehearsal at the URC. Doors will open at 7pm for anyone wanting to buy tickets for buses, the open rehearsal, or the concert (please keep those ticket sales coming!!).
Rehearsals are always much more fun when people have practised – so here’s a heads up on what we’ll be covering tomorrow …
For the Sops and Altos’ (not Semi Chorus) special session we will be going over:read more
Following on from what was by all accounts an absolutely brilliant rehearsal on Saturday (you heard it – the best that Graham can remember this early on for a joint rehearsal…), we would like all Sopranos and Altos NOT in the Semi Chorus to arrive early (by 7.20pm) on Wednesday. This is to practise the same bit we did last time for our early rehearsal.read more
We’re hoping to see all of you at our first Joint Workshop this coming Saturday in Amersham, where we will join our 2 sister choirs to practise what we’ve learnt so far as a full choir. For the first time for this programme we will start to get a feel of what we will sound like as a chorus of over 250 singers – all very exciting!!
